Well we finally did it. After teetering on the edge for about a year, watching prices fall with the economy, we finally sprang for a Florian greenhouse kit. Looked like the best quality for the price. Prices have started to go back up so.....that probably influenced the decision Now is trench digging, foundation, kneewall etc. After hurting his back digging, DH hired someone to do the rest of the trench and foundation. We will put up the rest ourselves. that is the plan, anyway. His back has recovered. Optimism is a wonderful thing. There are orchids in every room of our house, even the dining room! So it will be good to get them into a greenhouse. Waiting two years for some things to bloom is just too hard. Carol

Congratulations. I went for one on sale in January (probably not the same make but seemed the best qualtity one arround here). Having a greenhouse really does help for growing orchids which have difficult conditions difficult to get in the house. I'm aiming mine at the cooler growing ones over the winter, but it's a great semi-outdoor spot for a lot of others over the summer.

I agree with Howard, we need contruction progress pics. I tool lots while doing mine, but never had the time to sort them in to order and post them.

That's so exciting! I am still waiting and watching prices, but did not catch on to the rising prices. I will have to act soon! I have been wanting one for a long time too. I am waiting anxiously to see progress pics.

It has taken us a while to get here. First thing DH did was cut down 3 Camellias, 1 Dogwood tree, 2 Italian Cypress, and an Azalea. Then we thought about it whilst watching the economy come down. DH started digging out extra soil and finding places to put it. Thought some more. Recently he started digging a trench for a foundation. He can move around again now. The guy who is going to pour the foundation came by tonight. City says "Yes, we need a permit." So there goes another $350. Nobody is building houses so they need every cent I guess. Here is some pics of where it will be. Carol
